Amazing house. Made our group of 8 feel like we were in our own homes. Plenty of space, great entertainment area. All the kitchen tools/appliances you could possibly need. All bedrooms are very spacious, bathrooms as well. Outdoor deck(s) with natural gas grill setup were put to use even with the temperature around 50 degrees. Would absolutely rent this property again!
Wonderful property and plenty of room! The pictures don’t do the home justice. Exceeds expectations!
Beautiful property, perfectly clean, and well stocked with everything we needed. We made great use of the large kitchen, preparing a full Thanksgiving meal for 12. The kitchen had every pot, pan, dish, appliance and gadget we needed! Highly recommended, and I plan to stay at the property on my future visits!
Thank you! We are glad your family choose our home for your Thanksgiving stay and found the kitchen and kitchenette to work well for the group. We would welcome your group back anytime! Tara & Ron
Will NOT disappoint!!
Not only is this home adorable, well kept, CLEAN and stocked full of anything and everything you need it is located in the most charming and quiet neighborhood. We had a large group of 11 adults, the house is incredibly roomy with large bedrooms. I would say all of us are seasoned vacation home renters and everyone couldn’t believe the gem I had found. All weekend we were being wowed by this home. Communication with the owner was so easy and response time was very quick. I would definitely rent again when visiting the area.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We love Ballard and it is one of the BEST things about the home is the location, tucked away on a quiet, residential street with quick access to coffee shops, restaurants and local shops! We enjoyed hosting your group and certainly hope you will consider our home in the future! Tara & Ron
Our "Home Base" Exceeded Our Expectations
When our daughter planned to have her wedding in Seattle, I knew right away I'd need to find a home away from home for our large family. The Ballard House Seattle looked like it would be the perfect fit. Spacious, updated, air conditioning...all these descriptions were exactly what we needed. But O.M.G. this house greatly exceeded our expectations! Tara & Ron have thought of everything one could possibly need. My grandchildren (ages 1 & 3) had a plethora of toys, play structures, and even stickers and bubbles that Ron & Tara included in the generous Welcome Basket they provided for us. The in-house equipment such as a stroller, high chair, and Pac-n-Play were all lifesavers as we didn't have to lug these items up to Seattle. As our family arrived over a period of two days from CT, NC, SC, and CA everyone was awed by this house and the thought that has gone into the furnishings and provisions. There was plenty of space and fun family time around the island in the large kitchen/family room area and a couple of good meals eaten at the ample dining room table. I really just cannot say enough about this house and the memories it housed for our family. The wedding rehearsal, dinner, ceremony, reception, and brunch were all held within a 2-mile radius of this house so the location was perfect. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch and the back deck watching the solar eclipse. And with all the shops, bars, and restaurants of Ballard so close by as well as the Ballard Locks, there was always somewhere to go and something to do. But frankly, we mostly wanted to hang out at the house! Do be prepared to climb a lot of stairs as the entrance has a staircase up to the front door, as you can see in the photos. As you can probably tell from this review, I and my whole family highly recommend this house and hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did. Thanks a million, Tara & Ron for providing such impeccable accommodations!
Thank you for the review. We were blown away with how you clearly took care of the home during your time in Seattle. It is so greatly appreciated when a group is able to throw in a load of towels (OR SEVERAL as you did) and leave the home in tidy condition. We don't want to be burdensome to groups and try and make check-out procedures fairly lax/optional/if time allows but It is always appreciated.
It was such a pleasure to host your group and we certainly hope you will consider a stay at The Ballard House in the future!

Best VRBO/Homeaway Experience Ever
We (eight members of our family) recently stayed three nights at the Ballard House while attending a wedding in Seattle. Prior to booking the house, I had read the reviews for this property and thought to myself, wow, either this is a great place to stay or there are a lot of people out there who love to embellish their experiences. Well, the the real answer is: THIS IS A FABULOUS PLACE TO STAY and all of the positive stuff that people had previously written is true. Owners Ron and Tara have done everything possible to make their guests feel comfortable. From the nicely furnished and very clean house, complimentary coffee, bottled water, tons of kid toys, the goody package to the very comfortable beds, it was obvious that owners Ron and Tara truly wanted their tenants to have a positive experience. They communicated with me well and checked in with us to make sure we were comfortable and provided literature about the area regarding things to do, places to eat and things to see. All in all, there are no negatives about this house or the owners. If we have an occasion which brings us back to Seattle and need a large house, this place is where you will find us.
Thanks, Dave. We thoroughly enjoyed hosting your group. You made our job as hosts EASY by being such great, self-sufficient guests! We took a lot of time to think through and research to make sure the furnishings and beds are quality and comfortable. While all groups are welcome at The Ballard House, we really try and cater to families, and love that groups traveling with children find the home offers many child amenities. We would welcome your group back anytime! Tara and Ron
Outstanding - 10+
Flying across country from 3 different states, we crossed our fingers that we had picked the right home and location for our 4-night stay in Seattle, a new city to us. As we walked in the door, our first impressions never changed - OUTSTANDING decision! Grandparents, our 3 daughters, their husbands, six children ranging from two months to almost eight, and a dear friend settled in beautifully. We loved the home, downstairs apartment, and enclosed yard. It was heaven for children with a myriad of toys and outside play items plus extra strollers, pac n plays, and high chairs for our use. We have never stayed in a home that provided all the amenities one would need for an entire stay, including two washing machines. "Extra frosting on the cake"... baskets of wonderful food treats for all ages (ours were almost empty by the time we left!) and an extensive list of restaurants and activities that Tara and Ron had prepared. After we arrived, it was not necessary to use our cars unless we wanted to visit other areas (Uber and Lyft came in handy too). Ballard is a terrific evolving "hot" spot with lots of good restaurants within an easy walk. We went multiple times for dinner, gelato ice-cream cones, and attending the Seafood Festival. Our coffee-aficionado children found a great place close by for their daily fixes. We regularly used the front porch and back deck for relaxing. Throughout our planning process months before we arrived and until after we left, Tara's customer service was SUPERB. She always responded quickly to our many questions. She even "saved the day" when the cleaners found a few items accidentally left behind. She graciously sent them to us. If we ever visit Seattle again, there is only one place we would stay... The Ballard House!
Thanks, Sue. We certainly enjoyed hosting your group! I am so glad you were able to enjoy all the amenities the home offers, we find the 2 washing machines/dryers absolutely come in handy, and the child amenities are very popular with our family groups. After looking at houses all over the Seattle area we intentionally bought in Ballard because it offers so many great amenities a short walk (5-20 minutes, depending on where you go) or drive away. We hope to host your group again! Tara and Ron
